McKinney, Texas – On Thursday, September 3, McKinney ISD students who have opted for in-person learning will return to MISD classrooms for the first time since Spring Break, and the halls of our schools will echo once again with the voices of students.

The district couldn’t be more excited to welcome students back to campus.

“Those who have chosen virtual instruction for the remainder of the first nine weeks will continue to learn remotely with the same high-level of instruction,” said MISD Superintendent Dr. Rick McDaniel. “But, our teachers and staff are very excited and have been looking forward to the day that we could welcome students back to campus in person. That day is coming next week on September 3. It will look somewhat different than what we are used to, but together as a community, we will continue to press forward in our mission to provide a first-class education for our students. And, we look forward to a day when every MISD student is back at school, learning together in a classroom with our teachers.”

When students return to campus next Thursday, all teachers and staff will wear a mask, per the governor’s order. A teacher may use only a face shield for short periods of time for specific educational purposes. Students under 10 are not required to wear masks but are encouraged to do so. Students 10 years old and older will wear masks throughout the school day, and students will be socially distanced in the classroom and during lunch to the extent possible. Following recently issued TEA guidance, MISD will not perform temperature checks on every student. Rather, teachers will take the temperature of any student who states that they do not feel well.

MISD’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) web page is the district’s hub for information related to COVID-19. For parents of students who will be returning to in-person learning on Sept. 3, it provides information about transportation procedures and steps parents can take to prepare their students to return to campus. The Health and Wellness section also features a COVID letter that provides important information about COVID-19 prevention and protocols that will be in place on campus.

The district is committed to providing a first-class education in the safest possible environment, and we eagerly anticipate the opportunity to welcome students back to campus.
